Who said life was a piece of cake? It isn’t right? Life is fueled by ups and downs. Consistency is rare. We create the consistency we desire.
It is not uncommon that we all go through times in our lives were we feel broken, or shattered, right? We find comfort in the dark, serenity in our own thoughts and peace in silence. Have you experienced that? It hurts to breathe, move, or think. Your body feels weightless and your mind is blank. It’s especially hard to put the pieces back together when you are alone, but this is when you have to search for the strength you never knew you had, and tear apart all the fibers that keep you from it. Release it, and save yourself from disintegrating.
I see people in pain on a daily basis. I hear their whispers and see their tears. I often wish I could absorb their pain, but that’s impossible.
An unfortunate diagnosis can shatter your outlook on life. It can bleed you of your desire to live and destroy hope. Don’t let things you can’t change destroy you. Rather, look for ways to bring light to your darkness. We are in control of the manner in which we expire, not the date we expire. Don’t live with an expiration date in mind. The inevitable is out of our control. So, give your best with each breathe you take.
